Nice useful project. Did you make the CNC machine, too?

What is the material you used on the dust shoe and where did you get it?

What a great idea. I use the metal insert that came with my table saw as a pattern to make mine using a pattern bit. But then I have to route out all these little cavities for the underside. It would be sweet if I had all that programmed for a CNC machine.

Does this work as-is for you? You don’t have any weird metal tabs sticking out under your table that require additional cutouts routed into the bottom?

Did you consider routing in a slot for a splitter? How about a finger hole? I always drill a 3/4 hole in the front to pull up the insert.

It’s always a good idea to have plenty of ZCIs on hand for the different blades, dados, etc.

I think you need to include more information when you post a project.

Hey Chucko! I’m thinking with you may have stumbled into a nice little money making idea here! With a CNC you could mass produce these once you have the setup inputted to your system…..
